For the longest time, I didn't get the whole "moist" word aversion thing, mostly because my brain autocompletes to "moist chocolate cake." Moist chocolate cake is universally pleasing.


Now, however, watching this video of some of People's Sexiest Men Alive (in order: someone who may be from the Vampire Diaries, a white guy with some hair on him, Tyson Beckford, a white dude wearing a t-shirt, a smug magician, Shaggy from Scooby Doo's amicable relative, Joey Tribbiani, and that guy from the Taylor Swift music video) mellifluously crooning it at the camera, I want to die. I want to go into a hell dimension where everything is arid and nothing is moist. Goodnight world.

Why is this so much a thing? How can so many people be bothered by this word? Inevitably the omg moist is the WORST conversation devolves into every other 'horrible' word like panties, ect, ect, ect. Why such a reaction? I don't get it. (I don't know why this comes up in conversation often enough for me to have experienced this so many times)
